    Sweet Whispers

    i have been told I love you so many times..before going to sleep and as I open my eyes. I may love to hear it but need more than that. Words are something, doing it is another thing. I need more than sweet whispers to my ears.

    He told me he loves me.

    He told me he'll love me forever and only me. But I guess it was all just bullsh*t talk. I thought he loved me, but he left. But the thing is I actually believed everything he told me. I feel stupid. He just doesn't see how hard I fell for him.

    Not sure if he meant it

    or if he just loved the person he thought I was. I'll probably never know. It's ok though, honestly throughout that relationship I felt like I had a weight wrapped around my heart and I was alway worried about being a disappointment. He never acted like he was happy, He was...

    Generally.. I don't trust it

    when someone tells me they love me. Typically, it's said and not proven or shown. My current boyfriend has does exactly the opposite. He shows me he loves me everyday. That is the greatest feeling in the world. <3

    Many, many, times. It's a wonderful feeling.

    I always make sure I tell my loved ones how I feel because I never know when I will see them again...

    I have told, "I love you,

    " with a tight hug and the words, "she's mine," he spoke it loud in front of our classmates before Biology class in the laboratory. But it's been almost three years he's my ex boyfriend. :'(

    In my experience, the words are often

    meaningless, and I take them as useless decoration in the absence of corroborating action.

    Like Never Before

    It was the first time I ever knew they were true. Those words hit the center of my soul. I longed to hear them. All my life I longed to hear them with the fullness of my soul.  I begged for them to appear on the page. I felt my mouth salivate every day for weeks. I had starved...

    Many Times By Many People...

    I love you is probably one of the most comforting things a person can hear... to know that someone feels for you, cares for you, is invested in you... that in itself brings a smile to my face... my family has always been very showy in terms of saying I love you and hugging... and...

    The only problem is, she didn't.

    I was partially to blame. I was obsessive, and she had vibrant vulnerability issues that came out as emotional abuse. I'm working on my self, I hope she works on herself.

    and maybe I did. But what you were going through put me down. I couldn't deal with it, not in that kind of relationship anyway. And I guess You didn't really except who I was on the inside. The slurs you made. You were too sexual and i'm not a sexual person. We just weren't...

    "I love you. Forever.

    And no girl can ever replace you." 1 month later, "sorry, I love someone else, and she's my true love" Probably the most painful thing I've ever been through. Seeing the person you love, love someone else....

    Life. The world. I see

    so much lies, and fakes. Once you see things, figure out where they come from, for what. You begins to see lies everywhere. They don't care about you. Your just like a cow to them. Used like cattle. And in the end, they have used you from the beginning. Free your self.

    I Want to Know What Love Is.

    I have heard the words "I love you" many times in my life.  I've heard it from my parents, grandparents, nieces, nephews, lovers, and even men who simply wanted to spend a night in my panties.  I have doubted at times that all of these persons truly loved me...

    A Foreign Phrase

    Growing up my family was very cold. Wait a minute, "Was" and "Still are" would be more like it. I remember the first time I heard the words, "I love you." It was on television. It was like a foreign phrase, a foreign lifestyle. I suppose it was there that I learned what family...

    Eh, those words don't mean much really.

    I only believe it when it comes from my parents. I rather be shown how much someone loves me than told.
